Whenever I upload a picture, I get 4 versions of each placed in my Media Library. For example:
Uploaded file: picture.jpg
The WP Media Gallery accessed through the Dashboard shows images normally, as they should be, one instance of each.
But when I access my server via FTP, I find that in the folder there there are 3 additional files of picture.jpg, making a total of 4. Like thus:
picture.jpg [original size]
picture-400×300.jpg [my large size]
picture-266×200.jpg [my medium size]
picture-200×200.jpg [my thumnbail size]
I mean, what the hell is up with that? I don’t want my original image quantity to be quadrupled! Is there an option I need to disable in order to do remedy that, or do I have to manually delete the extra files every times via FTP?
